Recipe

So let’s pretend you have someone in your life who doesn’t really like to eat their vegetables. They could be over thirty, under three, or it just may be you let’s not split hairs because people afraid of the green (or orange or red etc. etc. ) stuff are everywhere. I personally know two people who refuse to eat any orange vegetable, like absolutely no orange vegetables. It’s just weird who knew a simple carrot or sweet potato could be so offensive? Well, this recipe is made for those veggie hating people. It changes things broccoli that’s roasted and coated with crispy, crunchy Panko breadcrumbs mixed with pieces of pepperoni. Delicious with just enough meat and crunch to change someone’s mind for at least one meal.
